Mary Capone’s Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving is a celebration of gratitude and family traditions. Growing up in upstate New York, my family always gathered apples from our small backyard orchard in anticipation of the holiday feast. We’d pick the best of our crop—McIntosh, Pippin, Northern Spy—and store them in our cool pantry. When holiday baking began, we’d uncover our apples, still crisp and bright, and create recipes that highlighted them as a star ingredient. Apples fit deliciously into a traditional Gluten-Free Thanksgiving menu.

Celiac and Pregnant

There’s ample scientific evidence that untreated celiac disease, characterized by inflammation and nutrient deficiencies, can lead to infertility. There can be issues during pregnancy, too. If a woman with untreated celiac does conceive, the fetus potentially could be at risk: An Italian study published in 2010 demonstrated that anti-transglutaminase (anti-tTG) antibodies in the blood—a hallmark of untreated celiac disease—can interfere with the function of the placenta, possibly leading to early loss of the pregnancy.

Considering Colleges When Gluten-Free

This past spring, FARE launched its Food Allergy College Search tool to help families find detailed information on how colleges handle food allergies and gluten-free diets. The database, which initially launched with 40 schools, has drill-down information on allergy-safe options, cross-contact procedures, staff training and roommate accommodations.

"I am amazed how good your lemon pound cake recipe is. I love to bake but stopped doing it as much because after I went gluten-free, I couldn’t find a recipe that didn’t taste like something was missing. Thank you! Looking forward to other gluten-free cake recipes."

"Oh, how I wish my doctors had told me about the psycho-social impact of celiac disease—social isolation, anxiety, depression. People stop inviting you to potlucks, lunch with friends, dinner celebrations and neighborhood gatherings because they don’t know how to deal with your dietary issues. Gluten Free and More helps me deal with these issues. But it really takes internal fortitude to push through the isolation and step out the front door."
